President Obama refuses to give up on health care reform. He claims Republicans are playing politics. Meantime, Democrats aren't all on the same page. Stuck in the middle: You and your family. We have the raw politics for you tonight. Plus, the bombshell revelation in the killing of the Florida couple who adopted 13 children with special needs.

    I know that Allison Krause song and can't think of the title right now, that's the very beginning of the song that you played.

    The beat 360 comments by staffer Joey tonight is funny, but oh so not true. The guy on the ladder would have been seen right away, and to top it off would not have to pay a dime to tend to his broken bones...

    That was rude to tape her. I hope they bust them.

    That won't undo the damage done but it will make others think twice.

    I would much prefer Cannabis to be legalized and make Alcohol illegal. Especially after working in the field for 25 years....

    I agree with you completely (and other bloggers). Legalization of cannabis would address several problems at once.

    Taxation of the drug would bring in boatloads of money for the country and i do agree, it would limit the power of the present drug lords.
